  1. Dear PS 130 PTA,

    I am pleased to be in touch with you regarding The Equal Exchange Organic & Fair Trade Fundraising Program as a fundraising idea for next fall or even this spring.

    Is there a parent or student committee you know of thinking about greening the school or fundraising? If so, would you mind forwarding this email to the right person?

    Equal Exchange Fundraising

    The Equal Exchange Fundraiser features organic and fairly traded gourmet foods and handmade gifts from small farmer and artisan co-ops around the globe. The program also includes beautiful fairly traded wrapping paper (tree-free!) made from recycled cotton scraps in India. Equal Exchange’s unique fundraising program also includes free educational materials to empower teachers to delve deeper into the issues surrounding Fair Trade and cooperative economics: http://www.equalexchange.coop/educationaltools

    The Equal Exchange Fundraiser works both as an event and/or catalog sale and is an easy way to both make money for the school, while reinforcing classroom values of social and environmental responsibility and global citizenship.

    The following NYC schools are partnering with Equal Exchange:

    PS 89 Liberty School
    PS 41 Greenwich Village School
    PS 87 William Sherman School
    Institute for Collaborative Education
    Manhattan New School

    Please let me know if you would be interested in having samples for delicious tastes of Equal Exchange products. Or if you’d like to speak with another school who has used the Equal Exchange fundraiser.

    I look forward to hearing from you soon. Thanks for what you do!

    In Peace,
